Laments the British Male...
Gwyneth Paltrow has complained the British
male is useless when it comes to the dating game.
So, we think she should start looking for an Irish
The Hollywood star is happy to say yes if a man invites
her out for dinner but during her last visit to Britain
only two plucked up the courage to ask her on a date,
did get asked out a couple of times on my last trip
to London and I went out on both. They were very charming.
I only go for the toffs," she said.
she told Now magazine: "British people
don't seem to ask each other out on dates. If someone
asks you out, they're really going out on a limb,
whereas in America it happens all the time. Someone
will come up to you and ask you for dinner and you'll
say 'sure'. It's no big deal and no weight should
be attached to it. It's only dinner, for God's sake.
Yet in Britain, mostly what happens seems to be that
people meet at work. If there's a little something
there, then they hang out together and, all of a sudden,
they're boyfriend and girlfriend."
of the "toffs" who Paltrow shared dinner
with was British actor James Purefoy, star
of A Knight's Tale. The 29-year-old actress
was last in London for her performance in Proof
at the Donmar Warehouse. Her comments follow an
article by Canadian journalist Leah McLaren
lamenting the dating skills of British men.
According to McLaren, they are "repressed homosexuals"
who "live in abject fear of being left alone
with an unknown woman".
going out with roughly a dozen single men in London,
I have come to the conclusion that the modern English
male knows little to nothing about courtship, and
what he does know frightens him," she wrote in
who has had high-profile romances with actors Ben
Affleck and Brad Pitt, said she wished
there was less interest in her love life.
the interview, she said: "If there's one 30th
birthday present I'd wish for myself, it's that in
future I can be known more for my acting and less
for my private life. I came in to my twenties feeling
very naive. I went into this business completely open-minded,
not knowing what life was going to be like, either
work-wise or personally. It's been dizzying in a way.
I've watched, horrified, as people have got things
wrong about my private life and assumed that I've
been dating this guy or that. I can't have a male
friend walk me to a car without his life being turned
upside down. I've felt bad about how it hurts others,
but I've given up reading about how they handle it.
I've been the centre of gossip so much over the last
few years, the only way I can deal with it is by not
reading about it."
